Americans sure like to do things big, but it seems like they try and go even further than humanly possible in the nation's ballparks.
Everyone likes to pig out from time to time but the local buffet isn't the place to do it anymore. If you really want to have a cheat day from the diet or comfort eat like there's no tomorrow then there is only one place to go; your local baseball stadium.
Darren Rovell is a sports business reporter for ESPN but it seems like his favourite pastime is delving deep into the fatty heart of America's favourite pastime, baseball.
On his twitter and instagram accounts, Rovell piles together all the best - or worst if you're health conscious - items on the menu in MLB stadiums. And boy are there some crackers...
At the more timid end of the scale you have the Chicago White Sox serving bacon on a stick, as you can see in the above picture.
The Sox are serving theirs just with cracked black pepper while the Texas Rangers are offering their pork stick goods dunked in maple syrupy goodness.
How is bacon on a stick anymore portable than just normal bacon i hear you ask. It isn't, and i am genuinely stumped. But lets move on.
Sticking with the White Sox but moving on to pudding, we have every lactose intolerant's worst nightmare, ice cream. Not just any ice cream though, 12 scoops of the stuff, served in a helmet! The $17 dollar abomination is meant for a family but we all know that's not happening.
At least it has a bit of banana in there i guess.
Moving away from Chicago but sticking with the helmet theme we have the Philadelphia Phillies. We know they love a cheesesteak in the city of brotherly love but poutine in a batters helmet is something different entirely. (Poutine is a classic canadian dish that pits together fries, gravy, cheese curds and now bacon)
Last but not least lets take a tour down under. The MLB season kicked off in Australia last week and fans in attendance could feast on a FORTY DOLLAR hot dog. The two foot long behemoth was packed with frankfurter, chilli and several types of cheese for all your cholesterol needs.
